Slimjet NOT UPDATING

Post by fonqueman »

- Slimjet simply does not update.

1- I click on the top bar ribbon and a file shows up (sjt7z_x86_console.exe) - when I click on install, my Windows 10 says "This app is not compatible with your machine", and then "File failed to extract Slimjet file"...

2- Then, a ms-dos console opens up with this text:

7-Zip SFX 19.00 (x86) : Copyright (c) 1999-2018 Igor Pavlov : 2019-02-21

Extracting archive: D:\Programs\sjt7z_x86_console.exe
--
Path = D:\Programs\sjt7z_x86_console.exe
Type = 7z


Would you like to replace the existing file:
Path: .\biscripts\ApplyCSSFilterRules.jsc
Size: 2624 bytes (3 KiB)
Modified: 2019-05-29 07:37:57
with the file from archive:
Path: biscripts\ApplyCSSFilterRules.jsc
Size: 2624 bytes (3 KiB)
Modified: 2020-03-12 16:39:33
? (Y)es / (N)o / (A)lways / (S)kip all / A(u)to rename all / (Q)uit?

...............


--- My question is; what to do from here? Why this happens?

--- There is a way to update manually?

Should I download the last Slimjet update file from this site, and then just replace the slimjet.exe in my old Slimjet installation folder??


Thanks

I suggest you try the offline installer.

go to the Settings > Product homepage then click the Download link and then download the offline installer.

Hello, I have installed it and you have not presented that problem, perhaps the file arrived corrupt on your pc. But updating online or offline works

I don´t see a "Product homepage" section in my Settings... (EDIT: its´in the Help section.)

-- Got it here: https://www.slimjet.com/en/dlpage_win64.php

SOLVED: installed through the last Offline version, everything went OK. Thanks, oftentired.

--- Last question:

I installed this last version in a different folder (just in case).

Now that this last version works OK, can I just delete my old folder where Slimjet was previously installed?

Yes, if you have the portable version, you should be able to delete the previous version installation folder without issues.
